LWC Details Plans for a Safe Return

By: Venus Popplewell

Lindsey Wilson College will return for classes on the A.P. White Campus on August 22, 2020, with an adjusted academic calendar according to a statement from LWC President William T. Luckey Jr., to the campus community on Monday.

LWC will have an abbreviated semester that will end on November 25, 2020. Students will be in class on Labor Day and the two-day scheduled fall break has been eliminated so that students will be home safely for Thanksgiving and enjoy a significant winter break. Classes at LWC's extended sites and online program are anticipated to proceed as originally scheduled.

Please read the full statement from William T. Luckey Jr., Lindsey Wilson College President, including the details for a safe return:


"The decision to begin early and to end early is based on three guiding principles. First and foremost, we are concerned about the safety of our Lindsey Wilson College family - our students, faculty and staff. Secondly, our students, and our mission, require us to provide the richest experience we can. Our Academic Excellence Statement crafted and unanimously approved by our faculty and president's cabinet is best achieved through the high quality personal interaction with our gifted faculty for our students who are accustomed to seated courses. Finally, when we all get to the other side of this pandemic, we want to ensure this college, which has survived two world wars, is stronger than it has ever been.

"In order to be true to these three guiding principles, things will be different when our students return for the fall semester. To promote social distancing and allow a smoother transition if we are required to move to remote learning, we will be pursuing a hybrid model with students meeting in face to face classes on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday with no classes (excluding labs and other necessary requirements) scheduled for Wednesday. This mid-week break will allow a deep cleaning throughout campus. We will be requiring our students to social distance in the classroom and all faculty, staff and students will be required to wear masks in all public places. It's critically important that we take care of one another and make the small sacrifices necessary to protect our Lindsey Wilson family and our family back at home. Our residence halls and dining center will be open for our students with modifications.

"There will be further details about testing, isolating, quarantining, residence life, athletics, student activities and the dining center in the weeks ahead. We will be modifying the timeframe for move-in weekend which is scheduled to begin on August 19.

"I hope this is helpful information as we all look forward to a safe and vibrant return to campus. Stay tuned." William T. Luckey Jr., Lindsey Wilson College President
